The moving platform, with its motor-driven conveyor belt that advances to the rear, lets the user walk or run at a speed in unison with the belt’s motion. It’s a popular machine for doing cardio exercises, since walkers can go at a speed they’re comfortable with, and dedicated runners can really work up a sweat. Believe it or not, treadmills are the largest-selling exercise equipment on the market. Everyone from casual fitness enthusiasts to extreme sports athletes can make good use of a treadmill machine. What Are Treadmills Used For?These cardio machines are used for fitness and for athletic training. The earliest treadmill patent for a training machine dates back to 1913. But it wasn’t until the 1960s that medical research on heart health and the benefits of aerobic exercise supported developing treadmill exercise machines for home use. In addition to serving as cardio machines for fitness workouts and sports training, treadmills offer many other purposes, including in hospitals and rehab centers to help patients recovering from illnesses and injuries. School campuses and rec centers also make use of this exercise equipment to provide fitness options to their communities. There’s even a specialized treadmill aboard the International Space Station that astronauts exercise on to keep the heart, lungs, and blood vessels healthy and to maintain bone and muscle integrity.
